Our mission is to increase and enhance the interdependence and full participation in the community of people with disabilities.

We accomplish this through the use of scientifically sound, theoretically driven sustainable interventions and measures that lead to effective community living solutions and policy change.

Our combined expertise has established us as key resources for journalists covering local, state, regional, and national issues related to disability, independent living, interdependence, community participation, and civil rights. Contact our staff for background information, statistics, insights into current legislation, and project updates.
